Transient tachypnea of the newborn (TTN) is one of the most common causes of perinatal dyspnea and is traditionally diagnosed by chest x-ray. This study aimed to explore the diagnostic value of lung ultrasonography (LUS) for TTN as well as differentiate it from respiratory distress syndrome (RDS) by using LUS. From January 2013 to February 2014, 60 infants(More)
Lung ultrasound has been extensively used to diagnose many types of lung disease. This study aimed to evaluate the pulmonary reasons for long-term oxygen dependence (LTOD) in premature infants using lung ultrasound.Lung ultrasound was routinely performed in 50 premature infants clinically diagnosed with bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD).Among the 50 patients(More)
Conventional spoken sentence retrieval (SSR) relies on a large-vocabulary continuous-speech recognition (LVCSR) system. This investigation proposes a feature-based speaker-dependent SSR algorithm using two-level matching. Users can speak keywords as the query inputs to get the similarity ranks from a spoken sentence database. For instance, if a user is(More)
In this paper, we propose a spoken sentence retrieval system based on MPEG-7 audio LLDs (Low-Level Descriptors). Our system retrieves the spoken sentence by a two-steps sentence matching method. First, we locate several possible segments that are similar with the user's query in spoken documents and retrieve top N from these candidate segments. Secondly, we(More)
